“Elise loves reading and art and has treated each of her family members to a piece of original art for Christmas.

“At only six-years-old, Elise is able to create such vibrant designs; we can’t wait to see how her creativity develops.

Anneliese Dodds said: “I was a delight to see the amazing array of art that pupils across Oxford East produced for my Christmas card competition this year.

“Elise’s winning entry brilliantly captured the sense of togetherness this time of year brings, and her picture has now brightened up postbags in Oxford and beyond.”
